Almond Delights

My friend Cindi, who also grinds her own flour, has been experimenting with different kinds of cookies. Her kids have been in love with my Sunshine Cookies since they were first introduced to them when Cindi took one of my classes a couple of years ago. Looking to expand their cookie repertoire a little she’s been playing around with different, healthier, combinations of ingredients. I think this one is a keeper since she writes, “My son who doesn’t really like cookies, except for your sunshine cookies, ate about 4 of them in one sitting.” She notes that these cookies come out very moist like a marzipan cookie.

This is her first “official” Cindi recipe and I’m just thrilled that she’s allowing me to share it with you here. These sound absolutely fabulous and I can’t wait to make up a batch of almond flour and try them.
